Tuk Canadian jourimls wax dccidedly humorous over President Grant's proposition regarding the freo navigutioo of tho St. Lawrenoe. TVy concede it, and sketch the progre?s of a vessol f rom the Lakei over Niágara Falla, througb the rápida abcve Montretl, to the ocsan, aiid then back again by the sume olían nel. But, mind you, tbeir ooncessious are confined to the river itself, aud thty dou't seem to tbink tliat American sh;pping can possibly havo ny claim tofrec and uurestrictcd passitge throutrh the Gunadian ditchos or canaU. Gran't hado't looked at bis freo navigatiou seheme in that liht. - For the yer endkig June 30th 'last, 2,881 Americnn steum and snii vepgels, rated at 705,742 tons, pasad through the Weiland canal alone. Oswego, Clevoland, Dotroit, and Chicago ought to clamor f r cutting off tho bonding system - that is the systein of bringing goods in boud through and across Canada by rai! - and tho free navigation of tht St. Lawrence. The Lansing Republican has been nol a little iuohned to crack the whip over the baok of its Sute exdianges vrhich ventured to differ with it as to the policy of municipal : id to raüroads, coustitutional ainendment8, etc , culling the ooaductors thereof penurious, blind, repudiatore, and n host of such other pretty names. In arrother matter it is now enjoying a similar Messing, aod is smarting under the lash of its own party papers, and just because it bas dared to express an opinión that Judge Sutuekland 8 nul iueligiblo to seat in Congress, nnd that it is not the duty of the State Board of Canvassers to refuse him -.:„„,„ ita nolitical intecrity is tnpugned, its bearty support 01 Kbiggh called in ijües'iiin, and its advice to tne State Board attribufcd to a "sm akii g preferenoo" for Sutiieri.and. Thin is anotber illustrition of a well-known wurning : "With wbat ui:-asure ye me'e to othcrs it i-hall he measured to you again."' Latk dispatches from Washington fay that (Jen.

If Gen.

The Detroit Tribune, of Wednesday, took gruund in a labored editorial in favor of Hen. Austin Blair for United States Senator.

Tur President luis plnyed the rote of ihe "magnanimouf." On Thursih'y of lnst wetk Le nominatetl Yice-Aduiii'ul I'ortkr to be Ailmmil. That abject pology had the desired effect, elso Quant wants in the chief nnvel office a man oomjdetoly "undor his thumb," and Hat er hitnself that Pouteu will never moro prove rostive and insubordiiiato. It remains to be peen whetheror no the Sonate will confirm the numinatioB. - In the eatno official commnnicntion to the Scnato, llear' Admiral Rowan was nominated to bu Vine-Admiral ; Com. F. A.

Suthkrland. The Sta'.e lioafd wisely concludod tbat it had oothing to do with che matter. The House, on Monday, under a suspension of the rules, and without a divisiou. passed Logan's bilí aboiishing the offices of Adniiral ar.d Vice-Admirul iu the Navy. If the Senate shall pass the same before coufinning Pohter and Rowan, the former wi!J have ac complished nothing by gutting down on Lis knees and kisning the toe of Gkaíít. In the House, on Monday, a bilí was reportcd from the Judiciary Committee repeaüng the tenure-of-office law, and paseed under the pre?ious qucstion, by a vote of 75 to 25. It will not go as readily through the Senhte, tbe members of that body not being yet ready to let go the coutrol of appointments whicb that law gives them. The President has provided for nother "lame duck," this time by appointiog Senator Dkakk, who quacked to so :io nnrnnoo during the recent campaign ia Missouri, to be Chief Justice of the Court of Claims.

What fay the Lake cities, and the Michigan railronds having their outlet through Ganada to such a scheme ? Isu'r. that bitingone'e owd nose off tospite aneighbor's face f Mr. Rainey, euccoFsor of carpet-bagger Wiiittemore, of South Carolina, took iiirt Reat u the 'House on Monday.
